Modify the maximum ACE limit for NFSv4 ACLs

Contributors

You can modify the maximum number of allowed ACEs for each NFSv4 ACL by modifying the parameter -v4-acl-max-aces. By default, the limit is set to 400 ACEs for each ACL. Increasing this limit can help ensure successful migration of data with ACLs containing over 400 ACEs to storage systems running ONTAP.

About this task

Increasing this limit might impact performance for clients accessing files with NFSv4 ACLs.

Steps
  1. Set the privilege level to advanced:
